I was just wondering what other people do as far as taping your sabres. Do you tape all the way down the blade with electrical tape or just cheater spots? Do you tape your hilts as well? I'm just wondering what others do. Thanks!

If it's a sabre used strictly for practice I tape down the entire blade but not usually the hilt unless its rough or broken. Show sabres depend on the show.

Depends on the type of sabre. I would never tape a King sabre up (except for MAYBE cheater spots for practice)
Cheaper sabres I have been known to tape for my girls but generally leave the hilt alone. And make sure you don't put too many layers of tape on your blade otherwise you'll lose balance and it won't spin as well!

We have uber cheap sabres-- and I only have one girl that spun sabre this past fall/winter/spring. She thought the sabre would look better taped, because they are REALLY ugly.

So, she taped it white all the way down the blade. She left the hilt black. It looks MUCH better than the dinged up silver.
